The Oaks Course

Taking its name from Ryder Cup brothers Bernard and Geoff Hunt who were based at Hartsbourne Country Club during their glittering careers, our testing 9-hole course offers the perfect round for golfers looking for a shorter day on the greens. With immaculately maintained greens and a sophisticated drainage system, the course is an apt tribute to the Hunt family's longstanding association with the club.

Hole by Hole Description

  • 1st hole – A challenging par 4 to start with out of bounds on your right and a stream at about 250 yards from the tee. Once you have safely negotiated that, then you need to find a small green which slopes from left to right.
  • 2nd hole – A short but interesting par 4 where a good drive down the middle sets up a simple second shot. Beware missing the green with your approach as there are bushes if you are too long.
  • 3rd hole – A medium-length par 4 with out of bounds on the right. A 2-tiered green means that club selection is very important for your approach as 3 putting is very easy from the wrong level.
  • 4th hole – An uphill par 4 with a very difficult green. The fairway narrows the longer you drive it, so perhaps a shorter club off the tee is the sensible option.
  • 5th hole – The only thing to help you on this beast of a hole is that the green is fairly flat – it’s getting there that is the problem! A blind drive needs to be kept to the right as the fairway slopes sharply down. If you manage to stay on the fairway, then you still have a very tight second shot to a small target.
  • 6th hole – The first of 2 par 3s and a real challenge. It’s a long short hole this one and you need to aim on the left side of the green to either run the ball in or carry it all the way. Anything to the right will leave a very difficult second shot.
  • 7th hole – A brilliantly designed par 5 which is shaped a bit like a snake. Your drive needs to be very long and hugging the left side to have a view of the green otherwise it will be a positional second shot to the corner of the dogleg. The green has a severe slope so clubbing is important here.
  • 8th hole – A straightforward par 3 but to a smallish target. Miss the green right and you will have a devilish chip down the hill.
  • 9th hole – Coming back to the clubhouse now and a fittingly tough last hole. With out of bounds to the right and the sharing the stream from the 1st, your drive is about position rather than length. You are then left with an uphill shot to a small and undulating green – a par here and the 19th hole refreshments will feel a lot better!
